Beer Blog: Russian River’s Supplication and Sierra Nevada Rarities

Public House is now featuring Russian River's Supplication on tap for a limited time. Supplication is arguably one of the most infamous American Wild Ales on the market today. A brown ale that is aged for 12 months in Pinot Noir barrels with sour cherries and three seperate strains of active bacteria, Supplication is a remarkably tart ale boasting notes of green apples and oak, with a crisp, quenching finish. This beer is not easy to find, and it is truly fantastic on tap. Stop on by before our only keg runs dry!


In addition to Supplication, and several other seasonal selections that we have on tap, Public House is also featuring eight rare brews from Sierra Nevada. Here is a quick taste of what we have to offer:


Sierra Nevada's Super Rocket V8; Imperial Porter, 8.4% ABV

Brewed in honor of the 25th Anniversary of legendary San Francisco beer-bar Toronado, this smokey Imperial Porter is aged in Kentucky Bourbon casks to create a robust beer that combines bitter astringency with sweet, yet subtle, warming notes. The base beer gives off hints of rich, dark chocolate and roasted malts, while the Bourbon casks lend notes of coconut, vanilla, and wood. This brew has a long, complex finish that will be sure to satisfy even the most ambitious beer-geek.


Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp #53 Floral IPA; IPA, 5.9% ABV

This supremely sessionable IPA is brewed with whole-cone hops, rose hips, and rose petals, thus the name "Floral IPA." A bit lighter than your typical American IPA, the Floral IPA is a refreshing brew that does not skimp on complexity. Naturally, floral notes are at the forefront of this beer, giving off hints of white flowers, fresh and full-bodied hops, and sweet malts in the background. This beer pairs incredibly well with our Fall Chicory Salad, tossed with an Apple Cider Vinaigrette, Spiced Pecans, and Blue Cheese.


Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp #45 Oatmeal Stout; Oatmeal Stout, 9.1% ABV

The perfect beer for when the fog sets in, the Oatmeal Stout pours jet black with an immediate aroma of bitter chocolate, earthy hops, and roasted coffee. This is a thick, dense beer with a chewy and viscous mouthfeel, tied together by the smooth flavor of rolled oats. Truly a comforting beer with an assertive and satisfying finish.
